The Village of Waskesiu has always had access to the lake for boating but in the early days it was called a “landing”. While the community was being developed through the 1930s a marina was built on the shores of what is now known as the Main Beach in down town Waskesiu.
In 1964 Parks Canada relocated the marina 8 kilometers north of the townsite. Included in this relocation was a cement breakwater and six fixed docks able to accommodate 150 boats.
Reaching the end of its life in 2017 the old docking system was removed and replaced with a state of the art floating system with a capacity of 322 slips of six different lengths and widths.
The Waskesiu Marina is like no other marina in Saskatchewan. Not only is it the largest inland marina facility in Western Canada it is by far the finest in Saskatchewan. The docking system was built with the best material available. The floating dock system allows for fluctuating water levels and the cement breakwater affords protection from the prevailing northwest winds. At night the LED lighting system not only provides safety and security but showcases what a beautiful structure it is.
Marina users have an abundance of parking with two different parking lots. On busy days the Marina Adventure Centre launch marshals provide boaters with assistance launching and loading as well as a shuttle service to the parking lots. This service drastically cuts down the wait times at the launch pads.
When using the marina, the high level of customer service provided by the staff of the Waskesiu Marina Adventure Centre creates an experience unlike any other marina facility in Saskatchewan.
